Taps for Tuition

Thanks to a donation from LeadingAgile, our volunteers will receive $25 giftofcollege.com tuition cards for each funeral served in 2016 and 2017. The funds from these cards get deposited directly into the volunteer’s qualified 529 college savings account.

Volunteers in Wisconsin and Texas may double-dip and receive both their state tuition vouchers and the giftofcollege.com cards.

To qualify for the tuition card, volunteers need to register at giftofcollege.com and must submit their signed Taps verification form and a photo to YTTC within one week of the funeral service. These forms should be submitted in our volunteer login area.
